    Explanation
    The correct answer is "On Taxiway G at its intersection with Runway 10-28." This is indicated by the array of signs seen while taxiing. The signs likely display the names or designations of the taxiways and runways, and the presence of both "Taxiway G" and "Runway 10-28" suggests that the location is at the intersection of these two.
